We bought a batch of vintage 1960s Sunday Times magazines the other day. The word ‘sixties’ just trips off the tongue like it was yesterday, but it’s half a century ago now! These magazines are like time capsules from the era.
Some have wonderful covers such as this one with skirt length predictions.
There are some really interesting articles…
…and great photography from the likes of Eve Arnold, Robert Freson, Lord Snowdon, Ernest Cole, Peter Laurie, Donald McCullin, Duffy, David Montgomery, Ray Green, Constantine Manos, Horst Baumann & Maxwell Boyd to name just a few.
There are features on fashion and food…
…and, as is often the case in magazines from this period, some eye-catching ads that would be good enough to frame in themselves.
Throw in some wonderful illustrations, drawings & cartoons – and you have a really great read, wonderful source material and archive.
We’ve just listed them all individually on eBay – quite a mammoth session! There are a few photographs and a brief description for each edition. Here’s the link if your interested in taking a closer look.
